I got engaged in July 2009 and have been searching for The Dress since then. I have visited multiple dress shops with mom, sisters, and bridesmaids. I thought I had found one several time, but kept looking. Well, two weeks ago – I did find it! I was actually alone when I picked my dress; just me and my consultant. I would suggest this to anyone who is having a hard time and who is really looking to please everyone. You might get mixed feelings when you have multiple voices, but I knew instantly when I was alone. I am sorry to say that my wedding dress shopping is over, but I am so excited with the result. 🙂

Beautiful! I too enjoyed dress shopping alone, it was often overwhelming when other people went with me.

I found my dress alone too! And no one can say they don’t like it when you’ve already ordered it : ) Congrats on the great find.. you look beautiful!

I did the same thing. I was too tense getting too many different opinions. Your friends and family mean well, but they cause more stress sometimes! As soon as I went alone, I felt much better and was able to make my decision.
I love your dress, great choice!

I found my dress alone, too. I was never a fan of having a group w/ me when I go shopping. I knew I was going to get a dress I liked anyways — no matter what other people’s opinions are. The dress arrived this week. I told my mom & sister and we are going together to get my final fitting. I am also bringing the dress to my grandma’s house (she can’t walk very well) so we can have “grandma & me time” as I try on my wedding dress for her.

I only went shopping twice. The first time I went with my friend, and if I had listened to her I would have gone home with a dress that did not flatter me at all. Looking back on the photo of that dress I just cringe. I knew it wasn’t the right dress for me. I went back later by myself and it was the best experience. 🙂 I would recommened it to anyone if they asked what I prefer. I’m glad you found the dress and did it on your own time and by the way, that dress is not only gorgeous but so awesome for you!

I shop best alone normally. When I go shopping with friends it’s mostly to socialize and I never end up buying anything I’m actually looking for but when I’m actually looking for a specific thing I go by myself.
I think it’s better to invite a big group when you first start looking and then as you figure out what you want take only one or go by yourself.

I live in a different state from my friends and family so I found my dress alone too!! It’s definitely not as fun to have a few friends in tow, but I didn’t mind it since I felt like it might have been a drag for them to watch me try on a bunch of dresses only to decide none of them were it.
